Giveaway..and Friday Night Sew-in for January!

Bobbi and I are hosting the first Friday Night Sew-In for the New Year and a Giveaway!! Let’s start out 2010 on top of all our projects!

Joining the Friday Night Sew-in is a way of setting some time aside to work on those projects on your to do list. And remember - it doesn't have to be a sewing project.. maybe you have a knitting project.. or some scrapbooking.. it could be anything.

So, join Bobbi and I Friday January 15th for our monthly Sew-In.

Here are the "rules".

1. Enter your blog info below.

2. Make a post on your blog - letting all your readers know about the sew-in. Spread the word.. we could all use the virtual sewing support and encouragement.

3. On Friday – 01/15/10 - Get your house settled, put on your comfy jammies.. maybe make a cup of tea.. and sit down to work on some of those projects (or anything else that you want to work on).

4. Then, sometime on Saturday - Make a post about what you worked on.. show us a picture or two.

5. Optional.. grab the "Friday Night Sew-In" Button on the right for your own blog!

And finally - on Sunday 1/17, we will enter all participants into a GIVEAWAY for something fun! Maybe some fabric.. or a sewing gadget or two.

imagrandma2five said...

Was wondering do we have to have a blog to play? I have one but haven't updated it in months. Takes too much time away from my quilting so I gave it up. Would like to still participate though. Can I post it on my FB page?

Margie said...

This sounds like some fun!! Will put the button on my blog to keep this brain working properly.

Kim said...

Cool! Sounds like fun!

Shirley--Knot-y Embroidery Lady said...

I'll have my jammies on and my camera handy - let the sewing begin.

Heidi said...

@ imagrandma2five - You can participate without a blog - it's just nice to see what everyone works on.

Wendy said...

Fantastic idea!!! This should be FUN!

Barb said...

Oh this is great! It fits right in with my New Year's resolution to sew a little every day; now I have reason to sew an entire evening! I can't wait!

This is so much fun Heidi. I have to watch little Muffin with your kitty Biscuit. We don't want them fighting. LOL I think they will get along for this sew in tonight, don't you? Well, going to go have a cup of hot tea, and relax with Muffin. Then I will be getting back to my sewing. See everybody later. Have fun. It's just great being with Heidi and Bobbi for this Sew-In.
See you guys.

Pieceful Jane said...

I posted my progress for the night. It wasn't what I was planning, but I like what I did, :)

Crafts a la Mode said...

I put the "Friday Night Sew-in" on my blog and then I thought "What if I don't actually SEW on Friday night?" so I didn't sign up. Then on Saturday I realized that I DID sew and had a post on my blog on Friday, too. So, well, anyway, now I'm joining. It seems I do some form of sewing, planning, etc. every day.

Thanks for this group "sew-in".



Going to try this Friday night Sew In. I just saw this, better late than never
